Four Kicks by Crowned Heads

Four Kicks by Crowned Heads

Things have been a little tight this year and as a result, I’ve been doing the bulk of my cigar shopping online. The last couple of orders I have placed have been through Cigar Monster. If you started to see a pattern between Famous Sale Items and my reviews, it was no coincidence.

In my latest order, I picked up a 5 Pack of Four Kicks Robusto for less than $25 (shipped). It has been a little while since I’ve …

Herfin’ Heads: Sam Leccia – Black and White

Herfin’ Heads: Sam Leccia – Black and White

In this very special Ebony & Ivory edition of Herfin’ Heads, Ben and Brian have a few laughs, cover both the Sam Leccia Black and White lines and learn a thing or two. OK, we probably didn’t learn anything beyond how wrong our expectations were for both lines. That turns out to be a good thing and a bad thing. But I won’t spoil it, click on the play button below for the full story.

1502 Emerald

1502 Emerald

It has been sometime since I’ve done a video review. Inspired by Walt who has made a return to doing video reviews I decided to do the same. I actually forgot how much fun it can be and not as labor intensive as I remembered it being. So this should be the first of many more to come. I make my “return” to video reviews with a review of the 1502 Emerald. Up until last week 1502 Cigars wasn’t …

K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 Robusto

K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 Robusto

This week kind of got away from me and I found myself in a predicament. My daughter just laid down for a nap and I had a narrow window where I could review a cigar. Did I gamble and smoke a cigar that could potentially be a rough experience or would I revisit something that I knew would be enjoyable?

The latter won out and I grabbed a K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 Robusto from my humidor. This cigar was one that …

Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague

Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague

Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague. With a name like that, it makes a man feel as though he should smoke it with his pinky finger extended towards the heavens, in a show of class and sophistication. In addition to the fancy name, it isn’t packaged half bad either. It features a white wrapper with silver artwork which looks great.

I came by the Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague cigar as a free sample from Famous Smoke Shop

Asylum

Asylum

I am a glutton for punishment. Despite having virtually no cigar budget these days, I like to browse over to Cigar Monster once per day to check out their Monster Mashup. More often than not, I wind up closing the browser tab and texting Jerry about some great deal I came across.

Last week I did something a little different and couldn’t resist putting an order in. Included in my small order was a 5 Pack of Asylum Premium Cigars. …

Sencillo Black

Sencillo Black

Last week I fell into a groove. The weather was beautiful and after recording a review of the E Stunner by EP Carrillo, I wanted to follow it up with something else. I dug around in my humidor and came up with a Sencillo Black. I headed outside with my cigar, camera, and a cup of coffee. While I enjoyed my cigar, my daughter played on her swing set.

The Sencillo Black is a cigar that I’ve been meaning …

Room 101 Cigars: Daruma Mutante

Room 101 Cigars: Daruma Mutante

Back in June, Mike and I attended the 2013 Famous Smoke Shop Cigarnival. We did a joint review while we were there of the Room 101 Cigars Daruma Mutante. The video slipped through the cracks and probably should come with the tag ‘lost tape’. I came across it while editing video of a review I did recently and thought posting this late was better than letting it disappear forever.

We smoked the Daruma Mutante in the morning, before heading …

CHATweetUp 2013: Nomad Cigars

Fred Rewey’s a guy I’ve been meaning to talk to for a while. The opportunity presented itself a few weeks ago at the Chattanooga Tweetup, in a walk-in humidor conveniently stocked with plenty of Nomad cigars. In this interview, we touch on the Fugitive II, the Esteli Lot 1386 and the upcoming box-pressed Sumatra S-307. We also learn that no humidor is safe from a videobomb.
